Apple is aware of the problem and may be working on a fix but don't hold your breath.
In the mean time use http://www.chipmunk.nl/klantenservice/applemodel.html . It will return accucate info for all Macs.
Use the model number as a guide and see if it is mentioned in one of these links:
To identify iBooks, use this article:
and then this:
To locate your model number.
If the sticker is missing, you use the System Profiler for clues on matching specs.
Also the hardware test can give you a more accurate indication of some of the specs you have. This is another reason why when buying a used or refurbished Mac, or selling it, it is important to hold on to the original discs.
So, for now no garantee of good result from Chipmunk or Apple.
John Hubert 1, you said that Apple is aware of that problem? Can I read something about that from Apple?
Thanks anyway for the chipmunk site.
a brody, I was not aware that Chipmunk doesn't always return accurate numbers.
Thanks for the warning
Model number is also a good hint... when we can find one.
These portables did not have any.
The problem of not being able to get them by serial or model number is when it is time to order memory, hard disk, etc. Stores now have policy that said "you order it, you pay it".
Making wrong order on parts sometime quite costly is not my cup of tea.
I will just have to triple check by model, serial, chipmunk, Kingston and so on to make the right guess
Having a reliable Tech Specs site is certainly not out of range for the braves techs of Apple working as **** to be the best guy for the best products.
Hey! That's sweet don't you think Give us the cake guys.
Have a good day you all.
ps: English is not my mother tongue, excuse any weird whatever
If you enter your serial number here:
You will find out your Mac model. If you disagree with your serial number there, call AppleCare. They should have the most current database data on the serial number in question.
